Baer's Furniture Complimentary Interior Design Services

Are you thinking about redecorating your home? Or have you purchased a new home that needs interior design? You may be wondering if you should do it yourself or hire an interior designer. You may be intimidated by the process of choosing an interior designer or you may worry about the cost. As part of their commitment to enhanced customer experience, Baer’s Furniture offers a complimentary interior design service to their customers.

Working with an interior design professional can pay dividends tenfold since you will get not just beautiful, but lasting results. You may be worried that an interior designer will take over the project and you won’t see your personality or vision in your home. Nothing could be further from the truth. An interior designer can help you make your dream home a reality.

Below are 6 reasons why you should take advantage of Baer’s complimentary interior design service.

Specialized Knowledge

An interior design professional has specialized knowledge on how to take your vision and make it a reality. You can tell them what inspires you, what your vision is, and what you need in your home and they will help you realize that vision.

No Unpleasant Surprises

You probably have a picture in your head about how your home will look and feel. But you may not know how to get there. A Baer’s interior designer will help you every step of the way. In the end, you will have a home that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Time Savings

Designing or redecorating a home takes time and effort if you want to get it right. An interior designer can save you time by doing all the legwork for you. Your interior designer can pre-select items for your home, based on your preferences. So, instead of spending your time searching for furniture and accessories, you will only need to choose from what your design professional has found.

Details, Details, Details

Interior designers are by nature detail oriented. They examine every detail of the design. They take into consideration function and form as well as aesthetics. They may think of things such as lighting, accessories and other details that you haven’t considered.

They Work with Color

Many people keep their room neutral because they are worried about using too much color. An interior designer can find the right colors for your interior. You may be surprised at how they can put colors together to create the contrast that makes for a lively interior.


There is more to design than choosing the right furniture. An interior designer can help you find the right accessories to put the finishing touches on your home. As a Baer’s design client, you can ask your personal designer to choose accessories, bring them out to your home, and place them for you. You decide which you wish to keep. Because they know your design style and preferences, they will be able to help you refresh your look with a few simple touches.

Once you are completely satisfied with the Baer’s Furniture complimentary design service, they will keep you up to date with new pieces and accessories that will work with your home’s interior.

Get Versatile Seating with a Sectional Sofa from Broyhill Furniture

The sectional sofa has been an innovative, problem-solving piece since the early 1800s. These sofas were convenient options for awkward spaces such as narrow hallways and then, as now, were used to create versatile seating arrangements. In fact, many experts believe that end pieces of these older sectionals are often mistaken for corner chairs in antique shops.

Fast forward to the mid-20th century and sectional sofas again began rising in popularity. With modern rooms featuring open floor plans, the sectional has remained a popular option for versatile seating. The Ethan Transitional Sectional Sofa by Broyhill Furniture puts a contemporary spin on the sectional sofa while keeping the features that have made it an enduring favorite.

Choose the Right Sectional for Your Space

A sectional sofa can define the area of your room — it creates a multipurpose family gathering place with a casual vibe. A generously sized sectional sofa such the one pictured above gives your family room or living room all the seating options it needs. With its mix of transitional and modern elements, it feels both fresh and familiar, with a relaxed sophistication that fits the style of any room.

The key to choosing the right sectional for your space is research. The first decision you have to make is what kind and what size sectional you need. The measure twice, cut once rule applies here. You need to be sure of the dimensions of your room so that you get the right size. Because it is separate pieces by design, a sectional can be easier to move around, but no one wants to do it more than necessary. If you can, sketch out your seating arrangement, a simple line drawing will do. This will help you determine where you want to place the sectional and whether you want a left or right side—that is where you want the arm to be on your sectional. Then decide if you want recliners, a chaise, or sleeper option.

It’s Not Your Grandmother’s Sectional Sofa

When most people hear the term “sectional sofa”, the think of a huge L-shaped piece of furniture that dominates the living room. While this may be true of some sectionals, it does not really do the modern sectional justice. Because a sectional has many different pieces, it is a versatile, practical addition to large and small living rooms alike.

With so many styles and shapes to choose from, there is a sectional for almost every size room. To check out the variety of sectionals available, visit Baer’s Furniture Showroom today. Check out Baer's Furniture on Instagram.

Consider the following if you plan to buy a brand new sofa bed soon.


Sofa beds come in a variety of styles, from a sofa sleeper to sleeper chair. A sofa sleeper is the most traditional and ideal choice as is acts a comfortable full-size sofa most of the time, and then a bed as needed. American Leather Comfort’s Sleeper Collection offers sizes ranging from cot size, to double cot, twin, full, queen, queen plus, and king. You’ll also need to decide on the style of the sleeper sofa.

The Makayla Queen Comfort Sleeper with Nailhead Trim offers style and functionality. The sofa has a traditional feel, while the nailhead trim provides a bit of edginess. The mattress extends to a full 80” and can comfortably sleep two.

If you’re looking for something that offers more seating as well as a place for guests to sleep, the Gina Queen Gel Foam Sleeper with Chaise features a pullout queen size bed with a comfy gel foam mattress for a luxurious sleeping experience.

Mattress Material

When purchasing a sleeper sofa, you want something that isn’t just comfortable to sit upon. Find a sofa with a high-quality, durable mattress. For many years, innerspring mattresses were the primary option available. However, memory foam and gel mattresses have become more popular than ever. American Leather Comfort’s Sleeper Collection provides buyers with a choice of Premier, Gel or Tempur-Pedic® mattress.


You will need to consider your budget when choosing the right sleeper sofa. Sleeper sofas can range anywhere from $800 to $5,000. Choose something within your budget, but remember that you want to provide guests with a comfortable place to sit and sleep.

Seasonal Throws, Pillows & Accessories to Enhance Fall Home Décor

Autumn in Florida does not necessarily bring to mind falling leaves, pumpkin patches, and harvest festivals. Still, for those who enjoy decorating their home as the seasons change, fall is a great time to break out all your seasonal favorites before the holiday rush begins.
Accessories are a great way to add a touch of fall into Florida living. Changing your décor for the season doesn’t have to mean a total home makeover, smaller accessories and accent pieces can make a big difference. When choosing your fall accessories, you’ll want to consider specific colors and prints.


When choosing fall décor, choose browns, reds, oranges and gold. Mossy greens are also a great option, especially when you want to use colors that will also blend in with your current Florida décor. The Surya pillow in mossy green also has beautiful flowers adorning the front. Off-white, cream and beige are great neutrals to pair with bold fall colors. The Teegan Throw Blanket features orange, brown and yellow, which would pair well with almost any couch or sofa.


Along with colors, you can also choose specific patterns that are synonymous with fall. Plaid is always popular during fall. Botanicals are also a great option and will work well any time of the year in Florida. Consider festive prints as well, such as maple leaves, ferns, and acorns. Animal prints are always in style and work well if you find them in popular fall colors. The Surya Pillow in zebra print is a great option for fall as it also ties in burnt orange, another standard fall color.

While throw pillows and blankets can quickly change a room into feeling more like fall, there are many other accessories that can transform your home. An accent rug can quickly change a room. In the dining room, use a table runner to create a beautiful tablescape. Smaller pieces like vases and decorative bowls can also be used to create a festival fall look.

While fall might be considered more of “late summer” in Florida, you can still incorporate fall décor into Florida living. Accessories can help give your home a fall feel without having to rake up leaves.

Tips on Living Room Design with Broyhill Furniture

These days, the living room fills numerous roles, which can make decorating it a challenge. For some, it is a formal room reserved solely for entertaining while others use it as a casual room for activities such as watching TV, movies, or reading. Regardless of the purpose of your living room, it will most likely need seating, accent tables, bookshelves or media storage, and many other pieces of furniture. Below are some guidelines for creating an inviting and comfortable space to gather family and friends that will make your living room the best place in your home.


Set the Living Room Mood with Color

The color you choose will have a big impact on the atmosphere in your room. Colors can relax or energize, depending on their intensity, saturation, coolness or warmth. The Emily Casual Style Sofa by Broyhill is a relaxing addition to your living room. It provides the perfect place to relax at the end of trying, stressful day. The back cushions, fitted with multiple compartments, keep the fiber evenly distributed and anchor them in one place so that you don’t have to constantly rearrange them or return them to their proper places. The individually wrapped coils create a place where you can sit for hours in soft comfort.

Ceiling and Walls

Since the living room is traditionally a public space, the walls usually get a more formal treatment than other rooms in the house. To make your living room welcoming, choose a color or treatment for the wall that reflects your personality and style. You can add a textured treatment to the ceiling to add depth, and it doesn’t have to be 60’s popcorn. Try a swirl pattern or ripple pattern, or even faux or real ceiling tiles. Crown moulding adds a finishing touch.

Comfortable and Stylish Flooring

Always keep in mind that the living room is a public space, so select floor coverings that offer comfort as well as create a design statement. Vibrant wall-to-wall carpet can set the foundation for a bold mix of florals and stripes, while soft neutral flooring highlight art or furniture. Hardwood floors with area rugs are popular choices as well as ceramic, stone, or marble tile that can be warmed up with an area rug.

Where’s Your Focus

A focal point will anchor the room and help draw you into the space. The TV is almost always the real center of attention. In addition, an eye-catching piece of art or glorious view are also great focal points for a room.

Make Room for Conversation

Since your living room is a gathering space, make sure the furniture arrangement promotes conversation and interaction among its occupants. Pull couches and loveseats away from the walls and position them so that they face each other. If your living room is large enough, you can divide it into two conversational areas to create an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. Chairs and ottomans can be used to expand the circle while maintaining the intimacy.

Essential Furniture Pieces Every Home Needs

Beautiful rooms don’t just happen, they are built by layering smaller furnishings and accessories around carefully chosen classic, versatile pieces. The foundational pieces you select now will mean a more cohesive home design and fewer snags and regrets in the future. Knowing how to pick the five foundational pieces will keep your home looking stylish and put together for years to come.

The Armchair

Everyone needs a great armchair. When choosing an armchair, comfort is the most important feature. It makes sense to choose neutral upholstery since this is a piece you’ll probably take with you as you move. However, classic red never goes out of style and can add some welcome color in your space. Classic English roll-arm style is great for curling up with a good book or watching TV. It is a style that will ground any room you use it in. However, if modern or industrial is your thing, there are plenty of comfortable ones to choose from.

The Sofa

Since a sofa is one of the largest purchases for your home, not to mention the focal point of your living room or family room, you might want to play it safe. You can always change the look of the room with accessories, pillows, area rugs, and throws. A classic shape in a neutral color will be the most versatile. Then you can choose between loose cushions or tight back. Loose cushions give your room a casual vibe while tight black is a little more formal. Or you could choose leather, it’s kid-friendly, easy to clean, gets better with age, and never goes out of style.

The Dining Table

A beautifully weathered farmhouse table will always be in style. Or you may prefer a minimalist metal table. If you entertain a lot, be sure to get a table that has leaves so you can extend it when needed. If you live in a condo or have a small dining room, go for a round table, it can easily fit in tight spaces with room for chairs.

The Bed

An upholstered headboard in an unusual shape adds an aura of elegance to your bedroom and is perfect if you like to read in bed. This is where you rest and relax, so be sure to choose a bed that creates the mood you want. Or look for a bed that fuses eclectic design, exotic materials, and rich finishes for a new take on traditional style. More importantly, be sure to choose a mattress that gives you the right support – getting a good night’s sleep will change how you walk through your day.

Hidden Storage

Who doesn’t need more storage? A beautiful chest or dresser will be at home anywhere – tucked into an entryway, living room or bedroom. They can even be used in a large bathroom if you are short on storage. If you like mid-century modern, look for a chest or sideboard. IF you want something fancier, look for a highly polished traditional piece to give your home that posh, decorator touch.
